There was this Arab at a gas station and I clearly said "Daily 3, .50 wager, 20 tickets, straight and Daily 4, 10 tickets, straight".  I even said it twice to be safe.

He prints out 20 Daily 3 1.00 wagers

I repeated myself and he was getting really impatient with me.

 Next he prints out, 20 Daily 3 1.00 wagers and 10 pick 4 tickets

 I repeated myself again and he threw all the tickets again and started to shout in ARabic.

Then he prints 40 Daily 3 .50 wager...

Then he gave me 20 daily 3 .50 wager tickets out of the pile and the 10 pick 4 tickets.

 

He must lost alot of money

He can delete the tickets that he accidentally printed out.

The only thing he lost was his temper.

How did you know he was Arab? Was it his looks? Some Americans look like Arabs and some Arabs look like Americans. How can you tell the difference?

He was probably just as American as you are.  From reading your various posts I gather that you don't like people from different backgrounds, especially the Japanese. He probably was Iranian and they are not Arabs. Or maybe he was from Israel..they sound a lot alike since they are all from the Middle East. Too bad those countries are always at war, huh? That's why I don't like stereotypes. As Americans with Judeo-Christian values, we should put ourselves above the bigotry as a shining example of "the light of the world, a town put on a hill"

BTW, I also doubt he has a camel. Maybe he owned the place and drives a porsche.

^^^^  Sorry to burst your bubble bro but,,  You are totally wrong on the Japanese, Chinese and Korean thing.. and yes, those are stereotypes.

The Japanese are not doign well in the technology department these days,  Alot of Korean companies are surpassing Japanese technology.  LIke I said, the Japanese are overrated.  I've been to both Japan and Korea.

By the way, I don't have a square forehead. I have a round face. So does my Japanese and Chinese friends.  stereotypes,, steretypes.

Another thing.. Japanese and Korean language derived from Chinese language.

Yes NodAsian is one of my favorite cultures (Chinese and Japanese).  I like Zen, Zen gardens, Kung Fu, Tai Chi, the food, the watercolor paintings are awesome, and the calligraphy.  We wouldn't have hard paste porcelain if it hadn't been for the Chinese. 

I like the way they didn't let people in and out for centuries and held on to their culture and won't give the Europeans the formulas for porcelain.  If you can see the attempts that were made by the Europeans.lol  They even imprisoned ceramists to find the formula.  Many of them died trying.

I like the Japanese Tea Ceremony and Aikido and I like their manners the quietness of their philosophy, and the family values.  I know there are horrible things that goes on but that is with all cultures.  Even ours. 

Sorry, I worked in a fine arts museum (Education) for 15 years.  When we had an exhibition we would do a festival and workshops of everything about the culture including symposia and music.

The Hispanic festivals were the best.

As all of you may see, there are a lot of races in the whole world that makes a real difference between them, let me tell all of you mine, I really was born in Venezuela, my mother's country is Colombia and my father is from Peru, at 1950's they just met their selves in Caracas, well they stayed at Venezuela living and working so hard to raise three kids (i'm the youngest) i've got on 40, right now i'm living in Colombia as something like ex-patriated, just because i don't like comunism or the new system (neo-totalism) i just love democracy, because i was born in an democracy system and i just studied between Venezuela and U.S., but sorry taking it so long, well the only thing is, when i was living in my country there was some angry against any kind of foreign races, well some day i was working with a colored guy and he told me that i'm not from Venezuela because my parents were from other countries, when i herd this kind of stupid answer i just got anger, but something told me inside, stop, keep calm this one comes for better, may be the following would be funny for some or not, so i answered to him something that they don't really like (we were discussing in front of other working partners and most of them were white like me) well let me tell you something if i'm not from Venezuela, you must be from Africa and all your family too because there were no black people in America before spanish came only indian race (i've got some because of my father but i'm tall because of a granpa' he was from Germany) were existing in these countries, and another thing is that i'm more latinamerican than you because my parents are from South America, after all this stuff this guy layed down his face and walked away and we never talked about that anymore, the only thing is please do not hate any other race, because TENAJ sais, Oriental people are great, their living, their customs, as African race too, may be if just one guy made something against America it doesn't have to be all those people that are from Arab, let me tell you something, my country is a one country that you can find a lot of races from anywhere in the world, most of them are from Italy, Spain, Portugal, Arab, Israel, Siria, France, Africa, China, and a lot of Latin America, that's why beatiful women, remember not to judge all of them because someone that hates "AMERICA", remember just love and protect America, as long as you can, excuses for this long stuff, C U, regards

With many of the people who don't understand, English is probably not their first language.  Nothing strange about that.  Instead of getting upset about it, try to make communications easier by speaking more slowly, enunciating carefully, avoiding slang which might be easily misunderstood, and re-wording if you think they might be "stuck" on certain terms you used.

I could probably live in another country for 20 years or more and still barely be able to speak or understand another language.  I'm always amazed at how well most of the foreign-born people I meet are able to speak and understand English.
